The Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) open its doors to the NXT Conference, which is part of the NXT Project, a 3-year project co-funded by the EU Creative Europe programme.
The NXT Conference Making a Living from the Arts brings together academics from all over Europe, cultural professionals, cultural entrepreneurs and artists who will address the challenges that the contemporary arts sector is facing and explore the creative solutions that are being developed. The NXT Conference is a dynamic event, which aims to stimulate a critical debate on what is meant with cultural entrepreneurship in and outside academia.
Expect a wide variety of presentations by keynote speakers, academics and cultural entrepreneurs, in-depth and practical discussions, case studies presentations and networking opportunities. Delegates of the NXT Conference will attend as well NEU NOW, Amsterdam’s international art festival devoted to presenting the work of exceptional emerging talents at the Westergasfabriek.
